Let the story of British colonisation and its impact on the Eora people unfold for young students. Our resources of A3 images help bring early Sydney to life together with the narrative skills of our guides.
Topics covered within the tour include:
•First contact between the Eora and British
•The Aboriginal way of life before and after colonisation
•Significant people and events that fashioned the British penal colony
• Relevant sites in the development of Sydney
Students have the opportunity to dress up as the governor or soldiers, convicts or free settlers and given the real identity of a significant person for an instructive and interactive tour.
